televised silence

It's hard out there for a blimp.

But I don’t want to be noble and committed like most women in history were - which invariably seems to involve being burned at the stake, dying of sadness or being bricked up in a tower by an earl. I don’t want to sacrifice myself for something. I don’t want to die for something. I don’t even walk in the rain up a hill in a skirt that’s sticking to my thighs for something. I want to live for something, instead - as men do. I want to have fun. The most fun ever. I want a rapturous quest. I want to sacrifice myself to glee. I want to make the world better, in some way.

Portuguese designer Susana Soares has developed a device for detecting cancer and other serious diseases using trained bees. The bees are placed in a glass chamber into which the patient exhales; the bees fly into a smaller secondary chamber if they detect cancer. 

Scientists have found that honey bees - Apis mellifera - have an extraordinary sense of smell that is more acute than that of a sniffer dog and can detect airborne molecules in the parts-per-trillion range. 

Bees can be trained to detect specific chemical odours, including the biomarkers associated with diseases such as tuberculosis, lung, skin and pancreatic cancer.

breathe into the BEE ORB to reveal your fate

How long does a bee even live?

I thought this was some sort of bee bong!

I’m 100% supportive of this science until I breathe into it and all the bees immediately evacuate. Then I think it’s bullshit.

This is the closest thing I have to a life mantra. I’m going to embroider this on an enormous piece of cloth, then wrap myself in that cloth like a ghost, and then scoot as far under the bed as I possibly can without help.

I’ll sit outside the door with a hose in case anyone tries to get in.
